Step 1: Gather Ingredients
One 9-inch cake pan, coated with nonstick baking spray (I used nonstick foil)
6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
1 (10 oz.) package miniature marshmallows, divided
coarse sea salt
almond extract (use vanilla if you prefer)
yellow, orange, and brown food coloring
6 cups Corn Flakes, divided
For optional topping:
Reese's Pieces (about 1 1/4 cups)
Step 2: Prepare Ingredients
The 2nd layer 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, 1 1/3 cups (about 3.3 oz.) marshmallows, 1/8 tsp. almond extract, 1/8 tsp. coarse sea salt, orange food coloring, 2 cups cereal.
The 3rd layer 1 tbsp. unsalted butter, 2/3 cups (about 1.65 oz.) marshmallows, 1/8 tsp. almond extract, 1/8 tsp. coarse sea salt, brown food coloring, 1 cup cereal.
Step 3: Cook, Shape, Cool.
Using buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press mixture into 1 1/2-inch wide ring along the sides of cake pan.
Repeat steps with the 2nd layer set of ingredients, evenly press orange mixture into 1 1/2-inch ring inside of the yellow ring in cake pan.
Repeat with remaining ingredients to make the brown layer, evenly press in the center of the pan. Let cool.
Step 4: Add Topping and Enjoy
Top wedge with marshmallow creme and add Reese's pieces, topping yellow layer with yellow Reese's, orange layer with orange candies, etc. Mine look more like "Indian Corn" you can decorate yours in your favorite type of candy corn.
I think these would make a great Halloween treat bar for a kid's party, make the wedges (if having large party make several cereal varieties) and let the kids top theirs with whatever they choose, some ideas: peanut butter with Reese's pieces, Nutella with M&M's, canned frosting or the marshmallow creme with actual candy corn, jelly beans, colored marshmallows, gummi bears, etc.
Enjoy! Happy Halloween!
